Crock-Pot Chili Recipe

Chili is the best meal when it gets cold!  As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I prepped chili before we went to our Octoberfest activities.  It is the perfect meal to come home to after a long cold day outside.

1/2 lb ground sirloin
1/2 lb ground pork
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
½ yellow onion, finely chopped
1 ½ tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
½ tbsp garlic, minced
1 (15 oz) can petite diced tomatoes
1 (15 oz.) can chili beans
28 oz. of tomatoe juice
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
Salt and Pepper to taste
Optional Toppings: Shredded cheddar cheese, chopped red onions and sour cream

**1) Saute celery, onions and garlic until translucent
**2) Add meat and saute until cooked, season meat with some of the cumin, chili powder and red pepper flakes (the red pepper flakes are optional)
**3) Mix diced tomatoes and tomato juice to crockpot 
**4) Add meat mixture and beans to crockpot
**5) Set crockpot on low for 6-8 hours
**6) Serve with shredded cheese (cheese is a must!)  :)

I hope this is on your menu plan sooner rather than later!
